Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti Monday said that considering the silence in Kashmir as a sign of peace was flawed.

Talking to reporters in Srinagar, the former chief minister Mufti said, “The people in J&K have been muzzled and considering forceful silence here as peace is not good.”

She said sending additional forces to J&K was a clear indication that the situation was not good.

“Recent civilian killings in Kashmir is a failure of the administration,” she said. “This administration has failed to prevent such incidents.”

Mehbooba said that the ventilators bought through the Prime Minister care fund were lying defunct not only in Srinagar but in Gujarat as well.

“Huge amount has been transferred to the Prime Minister's care fund and nobody is answerable to the people. Defunct ventilators bought through this fund are a clear indication that it is the biggest scam. Tall claims are made about corruption-free government, but during the present times' corruption is at its peak and is going on in a sophisticated manner. Statements made by the BJP are not based on facts. These are just words and nothing beyond. These statements do not carry any weight,” she said.
